For many people, a new year means a new start. It’s no surprise then that these are the busiest months for both job seekers and employers. It’s a great time for candidates to apply and interview for new roles, and with many companies sitting on new hiring budgets looking to attract the best talent, roles which were left vacant at the end of last year can finally be filled. At the same time, jobseekers are more likely to get a speedy response from key decision makers strategising their resourcing plans for the year ahead.
If you’re eager for change, the odds of securing a new role are in your favour. As it experiences a period of rapid growth, the rail industry is in need of new, skilled, and also experienced workers like never before. Major infrastructure projects including HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail, mean that up to 12,000 jobs will be created every year for the next 5-10 years. But still, finding the right role can be tough, and you’ll be up against some stiff competition.
